App Description

The smash hit follow up to 1984's 3D Starstrike!

NOTE: This game is also available as part of the Spectaculator, ZX Spectrum Emulator app (as an in-app purchase). Spectaculator also includes the other Realtime classics, 3D Starstrike and 3D Tank Duel.

This is the original ZX Spectrum game by Realtime Games Software running under emulation with 100% accuracy.

After the failure of the Outsiders' invasion plans (in STARSTRIKE) the aliens retire to their homeworlds to rebuild their strength. The Federation decides to launch a pre-emptive strike and sends in a new model starfighter, the Starstrike II, piloted by (guess who?) you...

Your task is definitely non-trivial - 22 planets to be neutralised, divided into Agricultural, Industrial and Military categories. Each planet has a control system in charge of the work droids and factories of that world; destroy the control system and the planet is put out of action.
